Slackware and Arch Compared

I haven't been posting lately since last year (it's 2010 now, so HAPPY NEW YEAR for all of you). Slackware-Current hasn't shown any updates on the Changelog, which means that the team are on vacation or perhaps they are testing something on the background which is not ready for public consumptions.

Anyways, today i came up with a good article about Slackware Linux and Arch Linux. These two Linux distro have almost the same philosophy. You must read the manuals and you are free to control how your system will be by giving you the freedom to do so.

Some say Arch is more bleeding-edge and it's suitable for people who are looking for the latest version of packages in their system, while Slackware maintains their stable and secure philosophy since the beginning of the release. It's all discussed on this article.
